Brain Injury Lawyer in Albuquerque, NM
The brain controls everything from automatic bodily functions like temperature regulation and digestion to consciously controlled movements and thoughts. So any injury to the brain is serious. Some brain injuries like concussions or contusions may heal over time with rest. Unfortunately, brain injury resulting from head trauma does not always present immediately recognizable symptoms, so diagnosis may be delayed. Untreated brain injuries can often lead to the development of more severe conditions.

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries may result from untreated concussions or contusions. Traumatic brain injuries may also result from or be complicated by:
- Diffuse axonal injury caused by shaking or rotating the head
- Coup-Contrecoup injury, when an injury is found both at the site of impact and at the opposite side of the head
- Recurrent traumatic injury, when a second head injury occurs shortly after the first
- Penetration injury caused by a foreign object entering the brain
Auto accidents are often the source of head trauma that results in traumatic brain injuries, but slips and falls and unsafe work environments are also common contributing factors.
